About 100 people gathered last week outside of Castlegar City Hall for a vigil held to commemorate the recent tragic events at a Quebec mosque. Organizers also wanted to focus on the suffering of all marginalized peoples. Attendees were encouraged to bring a candle and open their hearts as they offered a prayer and lit their candles together.
